When Sugar, an adorable little grey kitten, arrived along with his siblings at Exploits Valley SPCA, the staff quickly realised that the tiny feline was very poorly. He needed urgent treatment for a respiratory virus, so while his siblings found new homes, Sugar had to stay longer at the shelter to get better.

But Sugar didn't mind having to stay at the shelter for a while longer. He thoroughly enjoyed it. The friendly feline bonded with everyone and made sure that staff and volunteers knew he was around. Right from the start, he was very talkative, mostly when he wanted to attract the attention of one particular member of staff, Glen.

Chatty kitty

Glen often had the job of cleaning Sugar's room. Each time Glen would go in, Sugar would get very excited and start meowing at him to get attention. Whenever Sugar caught a glimpse of Glen, she would meow and meow until Glen would give the adorable kitten the attention he wanted.

Glen has worked at the shelter for 30 years and not surprisingly, as an animal lover, he has fallen in love with numerous cats during his time there. But he's never adopted one. That was until he met Sugar.

While Sugar had fallen in love with Glen, the attraction was mutual. Glen hadn't any plans to adopt a cat, but there was something extraordinary about Sugar.
